Top Ten Favorite TV Shows

♥ Supernatural – My love affair with the Winchesters started during my freshman year of college when I was binge watching entire seasons of it instead of studying for my chemistry exams (it was a pretty popular topic for my LiveJournal posts back then too).  I still watch every episode but I’m not quite as in to it as I used to be; I was in love with the original five-season arc, particularly the dark and gritty feel of the early days.  Either way, I’m gonna be a Dean girl until the end (that girl in the .gif is totally me).

♥ From Dusk till Dawn – I was obsessed with this show before I had even seen an episode and once I was able to watch it I binge watched the entire first season in two days (and have done that repeatedly ever since).  It’s based on the 1996 Robert Rodriguez movie of the same name but is far less campy; DJ Cotrona and Zane Holtz give the Gecko brothers so much more depth than George Clooney and Quentin Tarantino were able to.

♥ The Walking Dead – As I’ve mentioned before, zombies are sort of my thing so this one is an obvious favorite.  It’s also the only show that I’m currently watching that I absolutely have to watch as it airs, do not get between me and my television on Sunday nights this fall.

HAVEN nathan & audrey♥ Haven – I started watching this one on a whim when it first started airing on SyFy and I’ve been in love ever since.  It’s inspired by Stephen King’s The Colorado Kid and has a pretty interesting take on the supernatural-themed drama (which I’m obviously a fan of).

♥ Sons of Anarchy – I love each and every one of the characters on this show, even the ones I love to hate (Clay, anyone?).  This show is also one of the few that makes me cry pretty frequently, I couldn’t tell you why, but it does.

♥ The 100 – It’s pretty hit or miss with me when it comes to shows on The CW, but this one was definitely a hit.  I got really drawn in to the premise of the show at first, then fell in love with the characters, now I’m dying to get my hands on a copy of the book that it was inspired by.

Game of Thrones – Is there anyone out there who doesn’t like this show?  Having read some of the series I can say that there are definitely some on point portrayals of George R.R. Martin’s characters going on in this show and I am always impressed by the on-screen adaptations of some of my favorite scenes (and disappointed by the omission of some of my other favorites, but we can’t have it all).

♥ Friday Night Lights – Loved the book, loved the movie, loved the show. ❤

♥ True Blood – I have yet to pick up any of the books even though I’m in love with this show, hopefully I’ll be able to remedy that soon. I’ll also say that I definitely became more of a fan once Season 3 started because werewolves, specifically Alcide (don’t talk to me 😥 )…I’d like to have Joe Manganiello on my TV at all times.

♥ Star Trek: The Original Series – I love this show because it’s absolutely hilarious and also one of the most aesthetically pleasing things ever.  All those primary colors plus 1960s film technology?  Beautiful. I used to get yelled at for DVRing too many episodes when they would air re-runs on PBS.

Honorable mentions go out to SuitsLeverageFirefly, Teen Wolf (ugh…so much love/hate), and every incarnation of Law & Order ever made.


This past week has been a long one, so let’s pretend that I didn’t have to back-date this because I totally failed to schedule it for Tuesday, okay?
